The West Franklin Cross Country Team returned to action at the Lyndon Invitational on Thursday, with a total of 20 schools participating. The wet conditions at the Melvern Lake course brought about an additional challenge, but the cool conditions aided the runners, many of which improved their times significantly. Hunter Bailey ran his way to another 1st place finish in the 8th grade race. On average, the middle school improved a full minute on their times from their meet last weekend. Lily Judd battled her way to a 3rd place finish, with a long final charge that nearly brought her the runner-up spot. The boys team fought valiantly and came out in 3rd place as a team, behind KC Christian and Jefferson County North, both of which placed in the top 6 at last year’s 2A State meet. Kyle Haner held his position in the lead pack for most of the race, and claimed a 4th place medal at the finish. Overall, the team showed a lot of grit and took the right risks, many of which paid off with better times and higher places. Well done Falcons! Results are below.
